ATP World Tour - career prize money earnings of tennis players 2020

Novak Djokovic is the career leader in prize money earnings on the ATP tennis World Tour. With more than 143 million U.S. dollars in prize money earnings, he is only one of three players who have made more than 100 million U.S. dollars from prize money in men’s professional tennis. The only other two are Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Following his eighth title at the Australian Open in 2020, Djokovic also leads the way in prize money earnings in 2020, banking almost 4.5 million U.S. dollars before the season was halted as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Top players make more from endorsements and sponsorships

Even though the top players like Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer earn millions every year in tournament prize money, they generate even higher income from off-court earnings such as endorsement and sponsorship deals. In the twelve months from June 2018 to June 2019, Roger Federer generated about 86 million U.S. dollars in income from endorsements alone, thanks to his partnership with brands including Uniqlo, Credit Suisse, and Mercedes-Benz. Meanwhile, Federer's prize money income stood at 7.4 million U.S. dollars for the same season, thereby accounting for less than 20 percent of his income in that time period. In the women's game, Serena Williams, one of the most successful female tennis players of all time, was able to command 25 million U.S. dollars from her sponsorship deals with brands including Nike, Wilson, Gatorade, Pepsi, and Aston Martin.

Top 3 Grand Slam title and prize money leaders congruent

Somewhat unsurprisingly, the three male players topping the career prize money list are also the top three in terms of Grand Slam tournament wins and considered to be amongst the greatest tennis players of all-time. Roger Federer has won a record 20 Grand Slam tournaments, Rafael Nadal has 19 titles, and Novak Djokovic has 17 Grand Slam titles to his name.
